I am a NYC girl (for life), but have since moved away. My first stop when I'm home is to head to EssABagel for the real deal, hot bagels! There is nothing like them! From a hot plain with just butter or a schemer...to one...More

This is a must stop each time I go to NYC. And I bring some home. Huge selection of bagels and spread. Watch them bake them on -site. Eat them while they are warm. My favorite are Everything and Sesame.

Long line to get bagels is guaranteed specially in the morning. I found the menu confusing but the cream cheese was fantastic. Bagel tasted like bagels normally taste, a little chewy and heavy, maybe I don’t like bagels that much, but don’t get me wrong,...More
